Guam - The Guam Environmental Protection Agency followed through on an investigation of an illegal dump in Mongmong. The EPA was ordered to investigate possible dumps with in a three-mile radius of the Ordot Dump by District Court Judge Frances Gatewood Tydingco - what they found was a massive dump behind Lujan's Towing and Auto Parts.
Administrator Ivan Quinata says GEPA delivered a report containing a notice of violation to the company this afternoon, telling KUAM News, "Part of the notice of violation and order of compliance is of course for them to stop the work until they come into compliance and that coming into compliance is required by certain conditions that will be placed in that notice of violation."
Quinata says the NOV is for not having the proper permit to operate a dump and that the company now has 14 days to respond. Another report detailing the investigation is due in federal court on Friday.
